RSSC2021 was made possible and was successfully delivered online, thanks to the amazing participation of our Researchers, from attending preparation sessions, to abstract submission and finally to poster or oral presentations on the day. It was indeed very difficult to select the winners for outstanding posters and presentations and this is evidenced by how close the final results were.

The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Research in a Changing World’. Students from all disciplines and at any stage of research have submitted their abstracts considering this theme and how it interacts with their research area. Prizes will be awarded for the best presentations. We have had a record number of submissions and a wonderful range of topics, from our Partner Institutions, from our overseas campuses and from our Hendon based students.
